Aesop’s Fables (Wordsworth Classics)

Aesop’s celebrated collection of fables has always been popular with both adults and children. These simple tales embody truths so powerful, the titles of individual fables – the fox and the grapes, the dog in the manger, the wolf in sheep’s clothing and many others – have entered the languages and idioms of most European sayings. This edition is beautifully illustrated in black and white by Arthur Rackhman and has an introduction by G.K. Chesterton.

pinocchioPinocchio – Carlo Collodi (Wordsworth Classics)

The story of the walking and talking puppet Pinocchio is one of the best loved children’s tales of all time. Carved by old Gepetto, Pinocchio has an enormous nose which grows even longer whenever he tells a lie. The writer started “The story of a marionette” in 1880, by publishing it weekly in Il Gironare per il Bambini (the first Italian newspaper for children). Later he named the story “The adventures of Pinocchio”.
